Verein zur Förderung künstlerischer Darbietung und Kultur
"IG" = Interessensgemeinschaft
iː gɛː hɔp
In German "IG" is short for "community of shared interest"
The name also is an allusion to the Viennese dialect expression "I geh hop (s)" ("I'm gonna die"), which is reflected in the slogan of the association: "Swing Out With Us - Fatalistic dancing till the end".
People attend all our activities entirely on their own risk.
Participants of our classes and workshops are “temporary members” of the Verein IG HOP during the time of their participation.
We have no real home yet (if you have one for us, let us know). Instead, we rent studios and offices temporarily. Here are our main locations:
